How Do You Teach Cooking to Children Who Can't Read Yet

How do get your child who is not old enough to read or is learning to read to follow a recipe? There are ways to teach your child cooking and at the same time learn to pick up words. Remember, you can use cooking activities to help your children to read and cook at the same time.

If your kids are not old enough to read, there are limited options on what you can make them create in the kitchen. They should not be cooking on the stove, using knifes or kitchen appliances without your close supervision.

How do you then get them to follow a recipe?
